Information management

We collect statistical data about usage of this website. This information is not used to identify individuals, but is collected to provide us with an understanding of the areas of interest on this site, and show us how the site is being used.

Every computer that connects to the Internet has a unique identifying number, called an IP address. A typical IP address looks something like this: 333.333.22.1. Your computer's IP address will be automatically recorded when you connect to the hosting server to view this website (this is what happens on most websites) but it will only be used to log the total number of visits to this site; from this we can see how popular the website is and determine how easily visitors find it when using online search engines.

Collected information will not be stored and used for any purpose other than to improve site efficiency and services to the public.



The Dronfield Henry Fanshawe School website uses cookies.

Cookies are small text files that are downloaded to your computer when you visit a website. They can carry information from page to page (e.g - online shopping carts) and help a website recognise you as a repeat visitor - personalising the experience so that when you return, the website is the same as when you left it (e.g - a font-size adjuster that remembers your last font settings)

Cookies only record the areas of a site that a computer has visited. A cookie cannot collect any personal information other than the information you supply yourself (e.g - a login box that remembers your name and password - logging you in automatically the next time you visit).
